Hi! I’m Di. Thanks for dropping by.
Today I’m sharing a project using all Elizabeth Craft Designs products.
I’ve had the Shadow Box Frames dies for awhile, but this was my first time to use them. Happily, the frame went together really easily. If you need help there is a good tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft YouTube Channel.
Most of the flowers & greenery were die cut from white Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress Ink pads were pressed onto a kraft mat and spritzed with water.
Then I pressed and dragged the cut shapes into the diluted ink until I got the desired color. I repeated the process with each color. The variation in color and the water spots are interesting and add texture.
When the ink was dry, I spritzed a few flowers at a time and shaped them with a ball stylus.
The basket was cut from two shades of brown cardstock with the darker color placed behind to create a shadow. I used a blending brush to apply brown Distress Oxide Ink to the edges of the basket for shading.
After all of the pieces were cut and colored, I assembled the project using Glitter Glue, Uhu Stic Glue, and Glue Dots.
After these photos were taken I removed the small fallen flower and placed it on the lower right side of the basket (not shown). That helped to balance the composition. This was a slow project, but I enjoyed creating it. I hope you like it. Thanks for staying until the end!
